Burnley come into the weekend above Spurs in the Premier League table and their motivation will be to ensure it stays that way. They upset Spurs at Wembley with a late equaliser in August, and they will be confident of holding their wounded opponents at bay here too.

May 2010 saw Burnley pick up their only win over Tottenham in the Premier League; this came on the final day of the season after Harry Redknapp’s men had secured a Champions League berth for the following campaign just days before. Relegated Burnley would end their season with a flourish and win the game by four goals to two.
